Mythenweg - Path of myths

Short facts

  • Lügde

Lügder Mythenweg around the Herlingsburg - a legendary ground monument

The Herlingsburg rises in an idyllic landscape on the plateau of the 345 m high Keuperberg. There are many stories and assumptions about this area - were the Cheruscans actually hiding in the ramparts at that time? Or did the castle serve as a protected resting place for traders and travelers on their way east?

Many open questions will still have to be answered by current research. But if you wander along the Mythenweg and visit the legendary places, the stories that people have been telling each other here come back to life.

The Lügder Mythenweg runs along the mythical sites and places of cultural and historical significance around the Herlingsburg. Exciting legends and informative information stations await you on the 5 km long circular hiking trail with wonderful views. Bench back signs along the way tell you mysterious legends, for example about "the white virgin" who searches for her lover on full moon nights ...

The starting point for the hike is the "Hermannstal" hiking car park on Eschenbrucher Straße.
